Tomato, Tomato

Tomatoes may be the most beloved of farm stand offerings on the North Fork. Professional and home chefs alike look forward to summer when this tasty, sometimes sweet produce comes to market. You can find them in various colors and heirloom types at farms across the East End including Wickham’s Fruit Farm in Cutchogue, Sang Lee Farms in Peconic, Deep Roots Farm in Southold, Lewin Farms in Calverton, and more. They’re also the star of some menus, too…

Try a fresh tomato sandwich with garlic aioli on ciabatta with chips at American Beech. Refresh with a marinated biodynamic tomato salad with Bleu d’Auvergne, focaccia crouton, and summer savory or indulge with ricotta cavatelli and heirloom tomato with opal basil, ricotta, and Alpine Parmigiano at North Fork Table and Inn. Keep it simple with a vegetarian panini, like the homemade mozzarella and tomato with fresh basil and balsamic vinaigrette at Lombardi’s Love Lane Market.
